Shrines to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel: England, 1251

Blessed Mother appeared to St. Simon Stock, a Carmelite priest. She came as "Our Lady of Mt. Carmel" holding the child Jesus. Showing him a brown monastic "apron," called a scapular (because it is worn over the shoulders, or "scapula"), she promised that whoever died clothed in this garment would not suffer eternal fire.

 

Our Lady of Mt Carmel shrine

Over the centuries the scapular of Carmel has been adapted for use by the laity in the form of two small pieces of brown material held together by a ribbon or chain, and worn around the neck. The "Brown Scapular" has become a symbol of devotion and consecration to Mary, the Mother of God, and a powerful sacramental.
